Absolutely the best
My HOA ignored my concerns about the grading behind my townhouse for 3 years. In a huge rain, my window well blew out and about 5 thousand gallons of water buried my basement. The HOA said they are not responsible for interiors. I looked on AVVO, found Ball & McCann and sent a message on a Sunday. Steve called me in 10 minutes. Long story short, 8 weeks later, I had a check for the total damage. Everything they have done for me has been professional, quickly executed, and very affordable. Highly recommended.

My husband and I experienced a devastating loss several years ago, and did not know where to turn. We found ourselves scourged by unscrupulous people, scavengers whose only interest was to make money. We unknowingly hired people who deceived us into thinking that they could solve all of our problems. We eventually realized that these lawyers had deceived us with false promises. We looked on Avvo, and contacted Steve McCann and Drew Ball. After spending countless hours talking to them and sending them all the correspondence we had relating to our case, we felt complete confidence in choosing them to represent us. They have always been available and supportive, and we feel confident that the smartest thing we did was to hire Ball and McCann. Our case is coming to a close, and Steve and Drew have worked diligently to assure us that we will be very well compensated monetarily. More importantly, it gives us great comfort to know that Steve McCann and Drew Ball are there for us. We value their trustworthiness and consider them to be our friends. Sincerely, Joe and Wendy

Great Attorney, Highly Recommend
Drew was wonderful to work with. Trying to buy our first house was intimidating at first, but Mr. Ball was so helpful from beginning to end. He was caring, knowledgeable and responsive. I can't say enough good things. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Great Person and Attorney
Drew Ball is an excellent attorney, and I highly recommend him to anyone. My relationship with Drew began when he helped me resolve a dispute with my landlord, and could not have done a better job. He was knowledgeable, responsive, and delivered results that far exceeded my expectations. Since then, Drew has assisted me with various real estate and business law related matters, and I am proud to call Drew my trusted attorney.
